2003 Recipient - Split Britches

Split Britches is a fiery and funny lesbian-feminist theatre co-founded by Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin in 1981. Split Britches celebrates a community of outsiders and eccentrics combining elements of vaudeville, cabaret, popular culture, and performance art. They reinterpret traditional plays and current events and celebrate and parody butch-femme identities and their autobiographical experiences. The company received the Village Voice’s Obie award in 1986 for Sustained Excellence and in 1991 for Best Ensemble Performance.
